I really enjoyed this hotel for my business trip which included a gig at the convention center in downtown Tampa. The rooms are beautifully updated, with nice furnishings and great amenities. As a Diamond Hilton member, I received an 'upgrade' to a double-bed suite, even though I was jealous of the Marriott residents across the street with balconies on their rooms. That said, the rooms here were very spacious, and mine had a nice view of the Bay.
Great rooms, great views
Trolley stop literally right in front of the hotel - we went to Ybor City and had a great dinner.
Third floor balcony pool
Bridge to Convention Center
Giftshop - friendly staff and surprisingly well-stocked
Valet staff - friendly and busy!
Third floor fitness facility - small, in some disrepair (especially ellipticals), and light weights - dumbbells maxed out at 20#
Trolley's Restaurant - bland chicken noodle soup, and the pistachio-encrusted salmon I ordered to go to my suite was whitefish. Really? Did they think I wouldn't notice?
With some minor attention to detail, this place could be top-notch. As it is today, it's well worth a visit if you'll be in the downtown vicinity.
